More progress from the workbench... just some of what's on the go at the moment! :)


Lining out a very sweet little 3D printed saddletank shell:








Little and large - doing a similar job on a OO B1...:





The OO Gauge 01 from a couple of pages ago is looking a lot more like it should...:








One complete and one nearly complete - Class 27s:





And one just starting - a kit Class 21 that I'm working on for a Forum friend. Primered and filed down to stop the ends fouling on the Minitrix chassis bogies - another quick primer and she'll be turning green!:




Many, many more things on the workbench that didn't make the photo-call - I hope to get some more pics soon!

Great to see these, especially the Peckett - it's spot on!

So glad you like it! Just needs a bit of final touching up and it'll be winging its way back home... :)

A cautionary tale for the railway modeller…

When you are in the midst of constructing a white metal kit and you get a call on your mobile which you need to answer, check your digits for excess adhesive.

Otherwise you end up doing what I did, which was to superglue my thumb to my iPhone.  :doh:

Phone and thumb are now parted, but at considerable detriment to my pride and good humour.

Could have been worse.

You could have answered the call and immediately transferred the phone twix shoulder and ear, rather tricky to unglue THAT scenario!

I can explain it to you...

...but I can't understand it for you.

A couple more pics of just some of the work in progress...


The 3D printed Peckett, now finished:












Detailing on the OO Gauge 01 (not sure if I could get this level of detail in N Gauge!!) ;)










I'll be back at the workbench tonight, so hopefully more soon! :)

LOL, I've heard of people doing that where someone else has applied the superglue "as a prank" but never before of someone doing it to themselves  :D

Hmmmm…

Working on a class 47 which is intended to be in Anglia One livery, like this:





I've given it a base coat in Phoenix Precision's Anglia One Lilac Blue - what I thought was the correct shade for the lower body panel - and it's come out like this:



My worklamp is pretty bright and might wash out the colour a bit, but this still seems waaaay too light - have I got the wrong shade? Any dieselly-knowledgeable advice gratefully received!

Don't know anything about these, but you seem to have got the bottom stripe under the cabs sorted .....

There's a picture of a real one half way down this page if that helps.

I'm thinking you're right - the "lilac blue" is what appears to be the white stripe below the cab. Curses...

But you would have to paint it and mask it first anyway so some progress  :D
